Description:

Iran Project Director’s Seminar with Jamal Ibrahim Haidar, Paris School of Economics, University of Paris 1 Pantheon Sorbonne, and CREST

How effective have sanctions been in impacting Iranian exports? This presentation argues that exports sanctions may be less effective in a globalized world as exporters can deflect their exports from one export destination to another. Using highly dis-aggregated data about Iranian non-oil exports, it uncovers the existence, extent, and mechanism of Iranian exports deflection following the imposition of exports sanctions. It shows how exporter size, past export status, and pricing strategy matter in the process of exports deflection.
